The five-year NFL veteran spent the first three years of his career in Tampa Bay, appearing in 26 games with just five starts. He landed with the Cleveland Browns in 2012, and the Cincinnati Bengals in 2013 -- appearing in three games without throwing a single pass.
Johnson is 96-of-177 in regular-season action with five touchdowns against ten interceptions. He will likely slot behind Colt McCoy as the team's emergency quarterback, unless he wins the backup job outright in training camp.Back to the San Francisco 49ers Newsfeed
